Publisher's Summary

England, 1947: A young woman finds herself under close observation in an insane asylum, charged with a violent crime she has no memory of committing. As she tries to make sense of her recent past, she recalls very little.

But she still remembers wartime in Yugoslavia. There she and her lover risked everything to carry out dangerous work resisting the Germans - a heroic campaign in which many brave comrades were lost. After that, the trail disappears into confusion. How did she come to be trapped in a living nightmare?

As she struggles to piece together the missing years of her life, she will have to confront the harrowing experiences of her special-operations work and peacetime marriage. Only then can she hope to regain the vital memories that will uncover the truth: is she really a violent criminal…or was she betrayed?

Excellent

Loved it! This poor woman who works so hard to always do the right thing is theater at every turn. This is a gripping story of obvious sanity and compassion labeled as insanity.

Not as good as some of her other books

I am a big fan of Eliza Graham and have read most of her other books - she is normally wonderful with characterisation and plot but this book is not nearly as good as her others. There were long sections without much happening - the part set in Yugoslavia should have been longer and have more action and suspense and the other parts should have been shorter.

I thought Robert was creepy and manipulative right from the start and I couldn't understand why Maud fell for him. She and Naomi were two highly trained agents so why did they act like impulsive schoolgirls as soon as they arrived on their mission?

Why did the narrator not know how to pronounce common words? Surely she should know that Croat is pronounced Cro-at not Crote! She got dovecote wrong as well - it should be pronounced duv kuht not dovecote.
